Humanitarian Openstreetmap Team (HOT) is an international team focused on humanitarian action and community development through open mapping. Since 2010, the organization has managed activations to attend multiple events such as understanding hazards, public health, refugee response, among others. However, when we think about organizing large-scale efforts it can be complex, due to the necessary logistics, volunteers involved, and also assuring that the data collected is meaningful. MapCampaigner, is a tool which monitors progress, view metrics on the quality and completeness of collected data and users engaged. The goal of this talk is to present the latest features included in the latest update of the tool, the goals that MapCampaigner accomplishes and many humanitarian and non-humanitarian examples through a demo.
